Forum: GratefulDead Subject: 6/19/76

This show has one of the best Playing in the Bands of 1976.... The previous few Playings tended to be disappointing in that they kind of sputtered out & dissolved.... But for some reason, here in the middle of an otherwise average '76 show, it's like we're in 1972 again as the Playing builds to a frenzy. It's worth a listen....


Some interesting & spacy Playings were soon to come as the Dead found their ground again - most of June '76 was very slow & mellow, and I'm not too keen on the Upper Darby run that followed - but the Chicago run & San Francisco run is when the Dead started getting back up to speed in the jam department.... (They didn't even play the Other One until 7/14!)

One reviewer referred to it as being Dark Star-ish and I agree. The jams get real spacey but are tight at the same time. Don't know why they released the 18th instead of this one.

I'm not sure 76 is as mellow as people think. The 17th, the 12th and the 9th are pretty high-powered. Even the 21st is pretty tight.
